About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathroom, (Sleeps 6)

'The Nest' with views of Cruz Bay (across the street) are magical. All amenities have been selected by the owners to create a five-star experience, complete with a property manager to greet you as your ferry arrives to answer any questions and provide any information you need. Having lived on the island for years, she can provide you with any resources you need to tailor your stay to your specific requirements. She will provide you with information and recommendations for car rentals, water sport rentals, how to find the perfect beach, walking trails or restaurants and must do activities.

'The Nest' at Grande Bay Resort is perfectly situated in the heart of Cruz Bay and you can walk to ferries, shops (including grocery), restaurants, bars, wonderful walking trails and some beautiful beaches such as Honeymoon Beach. You can also catch an open-air taxi which will

shuttle you around the island.

The Grande Bay complex sports St John's only heated pool and spa with a large deck, waterfall and waterfront gym with new equipment.

This three-bedroom home is situated on the corner and has AC, two king beds, two twin beds and a sleeper sofa. All bedrooms have very comfortable beds dressed in luxury linens, wall-mounted flat screen TV's, and I-Pod docking stations. There are two full bathrooms and an excellent floor plan which allows privacy when resting in the bedrooms and ample opportunities to socialize in the living area and patios.

The kitchen has granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and a wrap-around bar for seating. The dining area has a glass-top table and six chairs. There are magnificent views from the wrap-around porch which are visible also from the kitchen/living room. While seated on the patio enjoying your favorite beverage you can watch the ferry/sailboats navigate the harbor and the locals and visitors enjoying the Cruz Bay lifestyle.

This home is the perfect place to enjoy a luxurious stay while accessing some of the most pristine beaches, marvelous walking trails, or partaking of all the water sports you desire. You are only a ferry trip away from other islands should you wish to venture out.

The beauty of St. John is that you can do nothing or go all out and have the vacation of your dreams.

About Jenn

Matt is from the Midwest and Jenn is from the West Coast. We now call Minneapolis home, we are career oriented and love to visit St John when time allows. We've made many new friends on St John and truly enjoy every minute we spend on island. We hope you enjoy our island home as much as we do.

Jenn purchased this condo in 2008

Why Jenn chose Cruz Bay

Location, location, location...we enjoy being within walking distance to all that Cruz Bay and St John have to offer. We are a short 5 minute walk from the ferry or walk down the beach to boat rentals and fantastic restaurants. Our unit is easily accessible by using one flight of stairs so we do not require the elevator.

What makes this condo unique

Being less than a five minute walk to 10 different restaurants and shopping. Every morning we pickup the Lind Point trail and hike to Caneel Bay. We have a beautiful corner unit with a wrap around balcony where we enjoy many meals and the occasional evening cocktail hour.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Matt,



Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful condo. We leave tomorrow but I wanted to take a moment to let you know our vacation was amazing! Everything you could possibly want or need is in your condo. We loved sitting on the balcony overlooking Cruz Bay each morning and night. Beautifully furnished and decorated. Loved having TV's in each bedroom and the living room to lay back and relax at night and watch a little TV after long days at the beaches.



Your kitchen is well equipped with everything anyone could possibly need. And, the condo was very clean. Just beautiful!



Being able to walk to the restaurants, bars, casino, shopping, and taxi's was so convenient. Even though a lot of the restaurants were closed due to low season, we had a fabulous time. The weather was perfect EVERY day. We went to Cinnamon Bay, Maho, and Hawksnest beaches. Maho is our favorite.



We took a catamaran trip to Jost Van Dyke on Kekoa. That was the highlight of our trip. We would highly recommend Kekoa.



Laurie Crandall was fabulous too. We provided her with our grocery shopping list and she stocked the kitchen for our arrival. Nice not to have to run to the grocery store when we arrived.



We hope to come back to St. John in April or May. We'll check your condo's availability soon!.



Thank you again Matt.

Fantastic place to stay! Great view...accomodations...and location.

  • 5 of 5

3 couples stayed at "the nest". We were all very impressed with the accommodations and location. The unit was spacious and provided us all we could have wanted. The large kitchen was nice for our group meal preparation. We enjoyed the mornings on the very spacious porch with a view of the bay.

The owner was very responsive and provided us personal recommendations.

We'd definitely stay here again.

Better than described!

  • 5 of 5

My family includes kids who are 21-27 so it was all about location, location, location and boy, did this deliver. The unit is on the first level (garage down below) right next to everything but not in the middle of it. There is water across the street but it is the harbor so mostly not swimming although a lot of people were paddle boarding and I did see a few people in the water. I didn't feel comfortable with the kids driving on the 'wrong' side of the road so this way we could all walk into town to eat, shop or hike.

The unit was exceptional. Very, very clean, roomy and well appointed. The owner left nothing to chance. The kitchen had the little things that make it nice when you want to cook- salt/ pepper, mayo, vinegar, sugar, coffee, etc. We had Christmas brunch for 12 and it was not a problem. Loads of glasses and plates even a sharp knife for meal preparation. Beach towels, a washer dryer in the unit (we used it every day) and there was laundry soap- not sure if someone left it or it was there on purpose.

The pool and Jacuzzi were nice and my daughter got a lot of use out of the gym. The people at the front desk were exceptionally helpful and we even rented our jeep right from there. A little known fact is that they have a small boat that can charter for a great price.

Jenn was wonderful about answering questions before we arrived and made suggestions for activities. The management company contacted us straight away to offer their services and make recommendations for activities, provisioning (we did our own- very simple) and just the logistics of getting around.

We would certainly recommend this unit and property and look forward to our return in the near future.

Perfect location, beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay during our trip to St. John! Able to walk to and from every hotspot, or to the square where you can easily catch a cab. Condo was spotless, plenty of room for everyone and had everything we needed! Will definitely stay here again if we ever visit St. John again.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you very much, we LOVED our family vaca at The Nest! Great location, convenient parking, comfortable beds, great kitchen, and fantastic view! We had daily breakfast on the balcony overlooking Cruz Bay, then set about out snorkeling and hiking adventures. It was so nice to return home in the evening to clean up and walk out the door to great dinner selections steps away. Fantastic!
